In addition, the deal included Hill’s ‘The Green Parts Specialist’ brand, which Copart plans to keep and leverage. The existing management team, headed by Ian Hill will remain in place.

Jane Pocock, CEO of Copart UK, said “Hills is a perfect fit for our business. Hills is noted for developing long term, stable relationships with clients and the culture – resourcefulness, reliability and logistical excellence – is perfectly aligned to the way we do things at Copart.” 

She added: “Hills is in a key location between Liverpool and Manchester so it is a great addition to our nationwide network, and comes with its own transporter fleet.”
